      Are there any non meat items? Fish? Seafood?

        yes, try the Shrimp bobo or the Fish muqueca, everyone that tried them said it was delicious...

        Funny, a burger is one of the last thing I'd think to order at a Brazilian cafe. What makes it "to die for"?

          CCG, what WOULD you order at a Brazilian Cafe?? Do tell...

          1. re: phelana

            I guess Feijoada would be my first choice if it's on the menu. It's a stew with black beans and many different smoked and sun-dried meats, especially pork, and smoked sausages. It is usually served with several traditional side dishes, including orange slices, shredded kale, rice, cassava meal browned in butter and a hot pepper and lemon sauce. Second choice would be Pasteis Fritos, which are like Brazilian empanadas filled with chicken,beef, fish, or cheeses. But a burger? Nah!!

              typically is Brazilian fare mostly meats? I would love to stop by if they have fish or seafood...Flaesantos??

              1. re: phelana

                Although meats are usually prominent on Bz menues, fish sould be plentiful as well. What is Flaesantos?

                    Humor reigns supreme - delightful. Now, Flaesantos, it's back to the food desk.

                    1. re: phelana

             I guess I won't be ordcering the "Flaesantos and Rice" special!

                    2. re: phelana
